Book Description

Verrier Elwin wrote this book to show the people of Britain the situation in India as it appeared in the early 1930s. His book, first published in 1932 and full of valuable insights into India at the time as well as the British public’s ignorance of the facts on the ground, is a powerful presentation of events of the time and an appeal to the people of Britain to face their responsibilities.
